Acne Patrol
 Finding the best ways to fight acne.
If you've come face to face with your first or umpteenth pimple, you're probably wondering a few things, like, "why me?" and, "what can I do about it?" We can help to answer both questions.

What is acne?
Acne is what happens when oil glands produce excess oil, and skin pores becomes plugged by a combination of oil, dirt, and dead skin cells. Oil production increases at puberty, so hormones have something to do with acne. So does heredity - if your parents had acne, your chance increases too. But at the root of the skin condition is a bacteria called P. Acnes - it creates the inflammation and irritation that make pimples erupt.

What it's not
Forget what you've heard - acne isn't a sign of poor hygiene or eating too many fries. In fact, overzealous cleaning (more than twice a day) and scrubbing can make acne worse. And no study has yet shown that greasy food or chocolate promote acne. If you think, however, that a food is triggering breakouts, try eliminating it from your diet for a few weeks.

How bad can it get?
There are three forms or levels of acne: mild, moderate, and severe. The smaller, fewer, and more superficial the blemishes are, the milder the acne. The more swelling and redness involved (called cystic acne), the more severe it is. It's hard to predict which way your acne will go, but you can do things to help control it.

Don't wait and see
Whatever you do to fight acne, what's important is treating it as early as possible to minimize scarring.

How to treat it
Try products that contain active ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Benzoyl peroxide helps blemishes heal and prevents new ones. Salicylic acid helps to loosen and slough off dead skin cells to keep pores clear. Antibacterial products kill acne-causing bacteria. Treatments can be drying though, so try oil-free moisturizers that won’t clog pores, such as mark. for goodness face moisturizer.
